Lincoln’s Birthday


Who was Old Buck? Why was Abe Lincoln’s sense of humor so important? And what role did Lincoln’s hat play in promoting his political fortunes? Visitors will discover the answers to these and other intriguing questions when they celebrate Abraham Lincoln’s 208th birthday at the David Davis Mansion. Children and their families are invited to celebrate the sixteenth President’s birthday at the home of his close friend and political ally, Judge David Davis. Through tall tales and amusing stories, visitors will learn about Abe’s life and the special relationship between Lincoln and Davis—two of Illinois’ most important citizens in their day.
Tours will last one-half hour and will begin in the Visitor Center. Mr. Lincoln, portrayed by Randy Duncan, will reminisce with visitors about his activities on the Circuit and during the Civil War. At the end of each tour, the President’s birthday cake will be served
